Leeds United have best support in the country and the Premier League NEEDS the Yorkshire club back in the top flight.
That’s according to David Moyes, who hopes the Elland Road outfit can finally end their long wait for promotion this year.
The Whites have just begun their 16th campaign outside of the top flight, after their heart-breaking previous season.
Leeds led the Championship for a total of 18 match-playing weeks and topped the table at Christmas, only to suffer a late dip in form and finish third, and then lose to Derby County in the play-offs.
Marcelo Bielsa remained in charge over the summer and will surely get his team back firing for promotion – beginning the new campaign with a win and a draw.

And Moyes, who was a special guest co-host on Tuesday’s Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, hopes to see the famous club back in the top flight soon.
“I think the Premier League needs Leeds United back,” he told talkSPORT
“I’ve been to a couple of their games and I watched them last year away from home at Fulham, and the support they brought to the game was just incredible.
“Leeds United’s support is, for me, one of the best in the county.
“I think they’re missed in the Premier League, I really do.”
